I purchased this tea from YS a few weeks ago and have only good things to say about it. Its a large cake for the budget minded. Being aged for 11 years, all funk is gone and i drink the wash. I have pushed it to 20 steeps (although 12-15 is about the cutoff depending on leaf to water ratio). Nice smooth and mellow sweetness with very slight cave aroma notes. Dark chocolate creeps in after a few steeps and diminishes after several more leaving a very smooth, sweet, dark amber liquor. It doesnt really punch you in the face, but its a great daily drinker for the price. I use 14 grams per 200ml water (in between fish eyes and raging torrent", in a 250ml duan ni clay pot. works for me and would highly recommend at least trying it out.
